    I'm looking for a case that I can use for my iPhone 3GS to protect it while MTN biking, skiing, etc. so I'm in search of something that is a hard-shell type ideally offering some moisture protection as well as structural protection should I take a spill with it in my pocket, land on it, squish it etc.
    Any recommendations? I have been looking at the OtterBox defender, but that thing is gynormous! I've also had a look at the Griffin Elan Form Hard case.
    Thoughts?
    Thanks!

    I completely agree, the Otterbox Defender Series is the best case I have ever used. Though the price is a little high it is worth every penny.

    For those type of activities I 3rd that for the Outterbox Defender. I don't personally use it, my husband does, but he needs to Active Military. I use the Outterbox TL and love it.
